We spent close to 2 years building Concept Feedback, growing the community and adding functionality. After amassing nearly 10,000 members, we hadn't made much progress on generating revenue. For those of you with business experience, you understand that the inability to make money can be problematic. In fact, it led me to launch Demo Duck, where I am currently Founder and CEO. We create explainer video (online videos that explain a business, product or service in around 60-seconds) for startups and web companies. We've been doing very well and having a lot of fun too!
In a few weeks, I'll be launching a new service (also created by the web wizards at DevBridge) called Video Brewery. Like Demo Duck, Video Brewery will offer web video production services for companies of all sizes. Unlike Demo Duck, everything will be done online, from payments, to contracts to project management. It's kind of like eLance for video. So make sure to stop and signup!
Concept Feedback will continue to chug along, and everything will remain free. We want the community to enjoy what we've created, and even though it's not making money, that's okay. I learned a lot from building the website and have been able to use those lessons in the creation and growth of Demo Duck and Video Brewery.
